when jim and netanyahu true and actual redline. on a diagram of a bomb, depicting red lines to be drawn against this program. generating a flood of reaction here at home. leland vittert has details. reporter: this is the first time a leader has threatened and actual military strike against iran. that is a very clear threat on the front page of every newspaper here. conceivably when iran would reach the redline here on the diagram of the bomb at the united nations. however, mr. netanyahu is not repeating universal praise because of what was said here. a little bit making fun of the prime minister for using this diagram. down here they are starting to print cartoons. this one, has a bugs bunny superimposed over the prime minister drawing this diagram. the big question is, what does this mean for israel going forward? has the prime minister committed himself to actually making a strike comes spring of 2013, and more importantly, how is he going to back that up? there are a lot of people that are not convinced that a strike is necessary. a lot of people are saying doing that at the u.n. was

believe i can. i talked about the principles -- megyn: there is jim lehrer who will be moderating tonight. >> it wasn't just vice presidential goarms team that thought oh won. there is a report that george stephanopoulos thought he won. he apparently declared the nine debates, 8 had been won by the democrats. later on these things harden. that'sy think the afterdebate is as important as the debate itself. what gets picked up and what gets focused on. my former colleague suggested the gaffe measure. has a gaffe come out. one of the tests will be, does the opposite side cite something the other candidate said in a debate in the an ad to make fun of it. megyn: romney is not a guy who makes a lot of fun of himself speak of making fun. and he's not a guy who has shown a lot of aptitude in connecting with the average joe at home. it seems like the folks who like him like him despite the fact they don't necessarily feel warm and fuzzy about him the way they would a ronald reagan. does he need to change that tonight, bill? >> i think he needs to tell people what he stands for. i think he spent th

operator's call. that makes its way into a lawsuit. last night moderator jim lehrer looked for stark contrasts between the two nominees. he found a big one in the role of government. we'll look at the debate today giving people handouts and giving people a hand up. >> the role of government, look behind us, the constitution and declaration of independence. the role of government is to promote and protect the principles of those documents it's time for swanson flavor boost. concentrated broth in easy to use packets. mix it into skillet dishes, for an instant dose of... hell-o!

what it is he wants to say regardless of what the president says or what jim lehrer says. megyn: sometimes with these presidential candidates, and it happens for a lot of republicans, they get themselves in trouble. it's not even the moderator, and we saw that with mitt romney, too, chris, when he made his now-infamous remark about the bet he wanted to have with governor perry. again, watch. >> i'm just saying, you were for individual mandates, my friend. >> you know what? you've raised that before, rick, and you're -- >> it was true then. >> no, no. [laughter] >> it's true now. >> rick, i'll tell you what -- [laughter] $10,000? [applause] $10,000 bet? >> i'm not in the betting business, but -- >> oh, okay. >> and folks thought that made him look out of touch. everybody knows mitt romney's a rich guy, but they can be their own worst enemies. >> absolutely. debates aren't going to be super consequential barring one of two things; a massive gaffe or a total out of the park line. those are the only two things that are going to make the debate worthwhile, especially with these two g
